In your article I think both 'Freelancer' and Virtual Assistant' are the same. If a virtual assistant is one who can be hired for a specific task, he can be called a freelancer. A freelancer can be called a Virtual Assistant and Virtual Assistant can be a freelancer.
Can you please show the difference?

Hi Ravi,
A virtual assistant is generally a person who deals/helps the company or individual apart from individual roles specified to him. For example a college student working as a virtual assistant for a web startup who is assigned the work of content writing for the company blog may also manage social media marketing for the company in certain cases. A freelancer may not do so as the freelancers are more professional and do only the task assigned to them.

Hope you understood the difference.

Working as freelancer is the best option as per my experience. You can continue working in the field you are interested in. Writing articles for the websites that cater to your niche areas would be an asset as a means of passive income.
